I think the Barons lines will look something like this:
Ryan Hamilton / Mark Arcobello / Toni Rajala
CJ Stretch / Andrew Miller / Tyler Pitlick
Antti Tyrvainen / Ryan Martindale / Ben Eager
Curtis Hamilton / Veteran to be signed / Wil Acton
Lizon / ?
Fedun / Veteran (Potter?)
Marincin / Davidson
Klefbom / Veteran
Not sure who the 14th forward or the 7th D will be. I think it is very important to get a quality veteran RW to play on the top line. A guy like Brandon Segal or Jamie Tardif would fit the bill. Would also REALLY like to see at least one more veteran defenseman on the roster. Randy Jones would be great if he'd consider coming back.
edit - I forgot about Ryan Hamilton! He's perfect!
I'm predicting a rough couple years for the OKC Barons. I think Oilers management is going to focus less on winning and more on developing our prospects. For this reason I could see Nelson walking soon as well.
